More inside…

One former "Basketball Wives" star has found herself in a world of federal trouble that could land her behind bars.

Former "BBW" star Brittish "Cierrah" Williams has reportedly been indicted on a bevy of felony fraud charges in St. Louis. And she has pleaded NOT guilty.

According to reports, the reality star – who starred in Season 3 of "Basketball Wives: LA" (2014) when she was engaged to Lorenzo Gordon, who played professional basketball overseas – was indicted on a slew of charges on September 22nd, including five felony charges of misuse of a Social Security number, four charges of bank fraud, three charges of making false statements to the IRS, three charges of wire fraud and three charges of aggravated identity theft.

The reality star mom made her initial appearance yesterday (October 7th) before U.S. Magistrate Judge Shirley P. Mensah. According to the indictment, Brittish used false social security numbers in order to obtain loans, lines of credit and other funds from banks and financial institutions.

STL Today has more details about her alleged fraudulent ways:

In 2018 and 2019, Williams deposited four checks ranging in value between $4,500 and $5,800 into accounts that she controlled and withdrew the money before the checks bounced or banks realized they were fraudulent, prosecutors said. The owners of the checks were unaware of the deposits, prosecutors said. She also falsely claimed dependents on her 2017-2019 tax returns, using false names and Social Security numbers, prosecutors said.

Apparently, Brittish’s lawyer believes she’s being targeted "because of her celebrity." Oh?

Williams’ lawyer, Jason Korner, said his client "has been targeted because of her celebrity, and I expect that to be clear once the evidence is produced."

This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service and the Social Security Administration. Special Assistant United States Attorney Diane Klocke is handling the case for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Brittish’s online boutique, Love of Labels, has received bad reviews and complaints on the Better Business Bureau website.

Right now, Brittish is pushing an online clothing store on her her IG account. She also recently posted about hosting a $750 webinar scheduled for next month on how to get into the trucking business.

Clearly, all that glitters with the "Instagram bosses and gurus" aint gold.
